‘Wow’: Dr. Oz leaves Fox & Friends horror-struck by springing pro-marijuana rant as segment ends

Dr. Mehmet Cengiz Öz speaks to Fox News (screen grab)

Mehmet Cengiz Öz, better known as TV host Dr. Oz, sat down with Fox & Friends to talk about an upcoming interview with Ivanka Trump — but it was his unprompted support of medical marijuana that stole the show.

Fox News invited Oz on Tuesday to speak about how Ivanka Trump revealed on his show that she suffered from postpartum depression.

As the interview ended, Fox host Ainsley Earhardt asked the doctor if the anger over Donald Trump’s presidency was bad for the country.

Dr. Oz agreed with Earhardt but then veered into a discussion about the opioid epidemic.

“Can I just say something,” Oz asked as co-host Brian Kilmeade attempted to toss to commercial.

“The real story is the hypocrisy around medical marijuana,” Oz said as the Fox & Friends hosts appeared stunned. “People say marijuana is a gateway drug to narcotics; it may be the exit drug to get us out of the narcotic epidemic.”

“Wow!” exclaimed co-host Steve Doocy, who is known for mocking marijuana users with the phrase “all potted up.”

“We’re not allowed to study it because it’s a Schedule I drug,” Oz added. “And I personally believe it could help.”

“I hadn’t heard that before,” Doocy gasped as he quickly ended the segment.

Trump’s decision to block coronavirus aid to hard-hit states will cost 4 million jobs: analysis

Published

on

President Donald Trump's refusal to provide federal aid to states hit hard by the economic crisis sparked by the coronavirus pandemic would cost the country 4 million jobs, according to an analysis by Moody's Analytics.

Negotiations over the next phase of coronavirus relief have stalled as Trump attempts to circumvent Congress with unworkable and legally dubious executive orders that fall far short of the aid that would be included in any Congressional proposal. Though House Democrats already approved a $3 trillion relief bill including an extension on federal unemployment benefits and $1 trillion in aid to states and cities whose tax revenues evaporated amid coronavirus lockdowns, Trump and Senate Republicans have balked at both provisions.

GOP’s use of Kanye West to help Trump has been a spectacular flop: CNN host

Published

on

On CNN Saturday, Michael Smerconish examined rapper Kanye West's presidential campaign — and how the GOP efforts to boost it to siphon voters from former Vice President Joe Biden don't appear to be working.

"Is Kanye West serious about running for president or is it all part of a dark twisted fantasy?" said Smerconish. "NPR has documented how several operatives, some with Trump ties, are actively helping the superstar get on general election ballots in various states. Kanye West officially on the ballot in Vermont, Colorado, Oklahoma, and Arkansas, and has filed recently in Ohio, Wisconsin, and Iowa. Jared Kushner met privately with West in Colorado, where the two par took in a friendly conversation ... the RNC and Trump has denied involvement in West's campaign. but the president isn't exactly discouraging the competition."

Greenland’s ice sheet has melted past the point of no return

Published

on

Greenland's ice sheet may have shrunk past the point of return, with the ice likely to melt away no matter how quickly the world reduces climate-warming emissions, new research suggests.

Scientists studied data on 234 glaciers across the Arctic territory spanning 34 years through 2018 and found that annual snowfall was no longer enough to replenish glaciers of the snow and ice being lost to summertime melting.

That melting is already causing global seas to rise about a millimeter on average per year. If all of Greenland's ice goes, the water released would push sea levels up by an average of 6 meters -- enough to swamp many coastal cities around the world. This process, however, would take decades.
